The John Robert Seeley Lectures

The Seeley Lectures are given biennially by a distinguished visitor to Cambridge, on a topic in Political Thought and its History. The Lectures are supported by the Cambridge University Press, and are subsequently published by them.

The Lectures for 2019 will be given by Professor Elizabeth Anderson (Department of Philosophy, University of Michigan). The series will take place in May.

A major conference on this theme will be held under the auspices of the Centre for Political Thought at Clare College, Cambridge, on 10-11 May 2018. The conference will address the ways in which political philosophers have engaged with concepts of time and the evidence of history. Registration details will be available here shortly.
